Should I Apply At Petco?

Does anyone have any experience working at a pet store? My petco is hiring and I'm looking for a part time job. They have actually cleaned up their act a TON and I like it there. I also think that I could help some bettas while I'm at it. However, I have 2 concerns

1) The snotty people may really get on my nerves and make me more irritated than normal if I see them being cruel to the fish (I'd try for the fish department).

2) How will I resist the bettas?!!

So I'm still wondering whether to apply or not....that is if I don't get my first choice at a place where I can just move 50 lb grain bags into peoples' cars all day...yes, I'm weird but I like physical work .

I say go for it! There are always going to be people getting on your nerves, if your like me. Sometimes in certain situations its hard for me to keep my mouth shut. And if you end up loading grain bags into people's cars, then thats fine, too since you like work like that. As far as resisting the bettas... impossible!!! lol

Yeah you should think of it as an opportunity to give people good advice about bettas- you can do a lot just by recommending the bigger critter keepers or 1 gallon tanks instead of those little betta boxes they sell. Poor bettas crammed into tiny boxes :(
also you'll get a discount on stuff

YES. get the petco job, or at least apply i mean. Think about it, the cruel people already get on your nerves and you already can't resist the bettas lol. Besides, you can tell people the correct information, and save tons of fishes lives and well being

GO for it! As soon as I'm old enough I'm going to get a job at a pet store.

Haha..that's so true! People who get bettas without caring for them do get on my nerves anyway! I decided to apply...whether or not I get the job is another story though. I'd probably only be working a few days a week anyway because I'm really busy with school and sports....and of course bettas!

Discounts are always good too!

Yes, I decided that I'm going to work at a petstore when I'm older, just a year from now. I'm getting my licence soon too horray! lol. They better put me in the fish department though or I will work somewhere else, the whole point is to help the bettas!
